Frequently Asked Questions
We care for a variety of pets! From dogs and cats to bunnies and reptiles. We can take care of pretty much any legal household pet.
We charge by time not by number of pets for both our drop-in services and dog walking. If we are dropping-in or walking one pet or two it will be the same price for you and we can split this time up however you like! For example, we could walk two dogs at the same time or if you prefer 15 minutes each.
Some exceptions may exist but we will discuss these situations during the booking process if they should arise.
In Saskatchewan it is illegal to offer boarding of pets in one’s private home, if within city limits. We also find that it is less stressful on the pet if they remain in their own home, as it is a familiar environment.
Our overnight services are $150/night plus tax. Our sitter will stay from 9PM to 7AM and drop-in once during the day. Our overnight services may be a little more costly than some but we pay our sitters hourly and this covers all of our costs. If you have any other questions just let us know!
First, we try contacting you. Second, we try your emergency contact. If anything happens to your pets, we will immediately take them to the veterinarian. We will do our best to take your pet to their regular veterinarian, but if it is emergent, we will take them to the Veterinary Medical Centre at the University of Saskatchewan as they are equipped as an emergency facility. Our PROfur insurance helps to cover the cost of these emergent situations so that our sitters don’t have to worry about how to pay for these life-saving services.
We are owned by a Registered Veterinary Technologist who can handle these needs. When unavailable, the crew members are trained to handle situations such as diabetes, epilepsy and more. All crew members are certified in pet first aid and CPR as well.
While you are away we send daily photos and updates to fill you in on what your pets are up to. This will either be through the client portal app on your phone or through text message, based on your preference.
Whether it be a break-in, damage, or a fire, we are covered under PROfur insurance to protect you and ourselves. We are insured and bonded.
Our sitters are certified in Pet First Aid and CPR, and the owner of the business is a registered veterinary technologist; she is at the sitters’ beck and call if they have any questions regarding the pets and their well-being.
While we do have an office location, we are often out pet sitting or walking dogs. Our office hours are 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, but calls will often go to voicemail as we are looking after pets from as early as 6am to as late as 9pm.
For drop in visits, we stay for 30 minutes. For overnights, we stay from 9pm to 7am.
Yes! Although we do charge a mileage fee, we cover areas surrounding Saskatoon such as Martensville, Warman, Rosthern, Aberdeen, Dundurn, Vanscoy, Delisle, and Asquith. In general, we pet sit within Saskatoon and then 50km past, in each direction. If your area is not listed above, we may still be able to help you out. Just give us a call or email and we can answer any questions you may have.
We take cash, card, and e-transfer. For e-transfers please remember to include your name or invoice number so we can identify who the payment is coming from.
We supply all of our crew with reusable masks and disposable gloves that they will wear the entirety of the visit. We will remove our gloves when leaving, inside-out, put them in a poop bag (because we have SO MANY poop bags), and use hand sanitizer before entering our vehicle to prevent cross contamination between households.
